The Commission is made up of three commissioners elected by the citizens of the Port of Bremerton. The vision for the Port of Bremerton is to create and maintain world-class facilities for economic development and recreation.
The Port of Bremerton's mission is to plan, develop, maintain, manage, and promote maritime business, industry, and aviation facilities and services that create economic development, increase employment, and provide transportation and recreational opportunities that enhance the general welfare of the Port of Bremerton's citizens and businesses.
The Port of Bremerton's Olympic View Business and Industrial Parks were constructed to attract businesses to the Puget Sound area. The Port of Bremerton's industrial properties provide over 700 jobs for city residents. The Port of Bremerton owns the parks that are currently home to 30 industrial-based tenants. Tenant activity produces over 700 on-site jobs and over two thousand off-site jobs in the region, and the parks contribute over $218 million to the Port of Bremerton's annual economy. The industrial properties have direct access to rail and sea and enjoy the benefit of being in a foreign trade zone with a nearby airport.
Cruising vessels can find excellent moorage, services, and facilities at the Port Orchard and Bremerton Marinas, where travelers can establish a base for the entire Puget Sound. The expanded Port of Bremerton Marina opened in 2008 as the centerpiece of the city's downtown revitalization project. The Marina offers modern and comprehensive amenities and related services that are unmatched in Puget Sound. Over 60 slips at the new marina range from 11 to 18.3 meters, and additional inside tie moorage is available for larger vessels. Located near the Seattle/Bremerton ferry run, the marina makes for an easy commute. Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance of the marina.
